Valued Reader, I remorse to tell you that the New England Patriots are certainly at it once more. The Pats appear to be they simply may be the most effective group within the AFC, having stifled the Falcons 25-0 final week for his or her fifth-straight win. Bill Belichick’s protection has given up 13 factors within the final three video games, and solely the Chargers have topped 20 throughout New England’s streak. This week’s sport in opposition to the Titans begins a four-game stretch – at Buffalo, at Indianapolis, residence in opposition to Buffalo – that can outline the Patriots’ season. Speaking of the AFC and nice defenses – wait, sorry, is that this proper? – the Chiefs stifled the Cowboys, 19-9, to win their fourth-straight contest. Kansas City has allowed simply 47 factors in its profitable streak, and if the offense can ever get absolutely out of its turnover-fueled funk, Andy Reid’s group might be scary. “But Chris, what about the NFC,” you ask. Well, each group besides the Lions is inside two video games of a playoff spot, so your guess is nearly as good as mine. This week is full of essential matchups in each conferences, and within the Thanksgiving spirit, as a substitute of gamers on the spot, we’ll establish every group’s largest turkey to this point this season. Onto Week 12.
